    No, not Model S as a status symbol :)

    I'd like to make a suggestion ...

    For years we've gotten used to the big red bar giving our hopeful delivery date ... today it has become far more difficult to keep track of everyone. Many here know each other, many do not. And glancing at everyone's profiles, it is next to impossible to determine where they all are in the queue ... even if they have a VIN. That means committed, but not necessarily paid for.

    So I propose we all use status symbols. Unless we are and I am oblivious to it!

    We have:
    - Lurkers *
    - Reservation holders *
    - Committed (clicked Finalize and signed initial paperwork) *
    - Paid (???)
    - Have delivery window ... waiting for those final days.
    - Driving it. (Or D)elivered .. but not delivered as on a truck) *

    Or simpler and we use only *.

    Am I making this too complicated?

    For those that want to share, why not just put it in your signature?

    Agreed, Bonnie ... but what I am getting at is making it something consistent so as a glance we can tell.
